Flagstaff 23FBDS SuperLite

Decided to downsize from 2015 Flagstaff V-Lite 26WRB and now have a 23FBDS SuperLite on order. This was mainly because the V-Lite's 29' 7" length was difficult to fit in our yard. Loved the ease of towing of the V-Lite. Had a number of relatively minor warranty issues with the V-Lite namely, one outside speaker not working. Dealer attempted to fix but to do it properly it was going to mean ripping a large amount of the interior apart. As we were never going to use them the dealer wired the one that was working directly to the bad one. The "Suburban" range's oven never worked properly, even after installing new parts. Dealer still waiting for more parts from manufacturer. Fresh (potable) water tank leaked during first month and would only hold about 1/2 tank. Dealer fixed that one. Anyway we are hoping to have better success with the SuperLite 23FBDS. We feel that the Murphy Bed will be the best solution for giving the feeling of spaciousness in a small TT, along with the double slides.
So, question is, are there any issues that anyone might have had with this TT? We would appreciate any advice regarding this particular unit.

Murphy Bed is the best in a limited space trailer like ours. It opens up the floor space wonderfully. A plus is we gain a seating area when the bed is stowed.

I hope you love your Murphy as much as we do ours. With the deep dinette slide in our "little" 21DS, 6-7 peeps are quite comfortable inside when conditions outside are uncomfortable. Good choice!

We purchased our 2015 23FBDS in May of 2015. Only problem was with the dinette slide blowing fuses when we first picked it up. Our dealer corrected that by replacing with a circuit breaker. Problem was solved. Only other problem was that the factory had forgotten to install the seal behind the refrigerator which let hot air in from the outside. Dealer fixed that as soon as we discovered it.
Wife and I, as well as our 85 lb German Shephard highly recommend this camper.
Easy to pull and plenty of room.Click image for larger version

Did you get this yet? We are looking at one right now, have to order it. We currently have a nice big Roo 23ikss hybrid and I'm really tired of the bunk ends, climbing over my husband, and packing up wet.

I can't find anything there isn't in this that we don't have right now. I really, really would like to know, though....where are the outlets near the stove/counter? Are they under the overhead cabinets? Pllleeaassee tell me there's outlets in this area.

Outlet in appliance area of 23FBDS

The outlet is in the bottom of the overhead cabinet to the right of the range hood.
There is also one to the right of the sink.
This camper has ample and well located electrical outlets.
I really think that you will be very happy with this camper.
Really love the roominess

Sheamer I imagine it's the laundry chute. You put a basket in the cargo to catch dirty clothes.

Yep... one of the first things I closed up on my unit.
